& prime numbers
In grades 3-5, students learn to understand and apply the basic concepts of probability, describe events as likely or unlikely, and discuss the degree of likelihood using such words as certain, equally likely, and impossible. They predict the probability of the outcomes of simple experiments and test their predictions, and learn that the measure of the likelihood of an event can be represented by a number from 0 to 1.
Elementary Problems of the Week that require some knowledge of probability are listed below. They address the NCTM Data Analysis and Probability Standard for Grades 3-5.
